Jackdaw: Valentine’s Day. The Graphic Novel.

My new book Jackdaw releases on 17 February.  And I have the mother of all teasers for you.

“Jackdaw: Valentine’s Day” is a Jackdaw prequel, drawn by the magnificently talented artist Lyudmila Tsapaeva. It features our heroes Ben and Jonah, who appears in the previous book Flight of Magpies, and as you will see, things are going swimmingly for them.

Individual pages follow, and there’s a pdf link at the bottom for download.

Happy Valentine’s Day from me and Lyudmila. I hope yours is better than Ben and Jonah’s…

Jackdaw Valentine's Day(1)-1







Jackdaw Valentine’s Day(1)


If you stop running, you fall.jackdaw small

Jonah Pastern is a magician, a liar, a windwalker, a professional thief…and for six months, he was the love of police constable Ben Spenser’s life. Until his betrayal left Ben jailed, ruined, alone, and looking for revenge.

Ben is determined to make Jonah pay. But he can’t seem to forget what they once shared, and Jonah refuses to let him. Soon Ben is entangled in Jonah’s chaotic existence all over again, and they’re running together—from the police, the justiciary, and some dangerous people with a lethal grudge against them.

Threatened on all sides by betrayals, secrets, and the laws of the land, can they find a way to live and love before the past catches up with them?

This story is set in the world of the Charm of Magpies series.

  1. Thank you, KJ, Lyudmila and Valeria, for this awesome teaser. I already have Jackdaw on pre-order so this heightens the anticipation! I love the symmetry of Ben and Jonah thinking of the other man – same memory, different POV. The ambiguity of the ending points to heartbreak for them. Can’t wait!

  2. Congratulation K J, Lyudmila and Valeria for putting such a wonderful amazing Valentines Day short together just WOW!! Now I want “Jackdaw” now I did pre-ordered it!!

  3. Soooooooo much better than a book video. This is brilliant. I’ve NEVER seen a graphic novel with better squalor! My heart bleeds for Ben – for Jonah, no, I’m going to take some convincing. Looking forward to it.

  4. WOW….
    Lyudmila and Veleria, your work is gorgeous! (I really like those cherry bed sheets :D)
    Thanks KJ, this is really unique…. And great tease for Jackdaw.. 🙂
